Getting To Know Android 4.2.2 - Many Extremely Tiny Changes, And An Android@Home Sighting!

Getting To Know Android 4.2.2 - Many Extremely Tiny Changes, And An [email protected] Sighting!

Android 4.2.2 is out, which means it's time for another edition of Getting To Know Android, the series where I impress/frighten everyone with my borderline-mental-disorder powers of observation. Fair warning: These are going to be very minor changes. If Google moved a pixel, you're going to hear about it.

We already covered the big stuff like the ADB whitelist, the new download notification, Quick Settings toggles, and sounds, so we'll skip those for this article.

Google Posts Factory Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) Images For Nexus 4, 7, 10, And Galaxy Nexus (Yakju / Takju)

With the Android 4.2.2 update finally rolling out for most Nexus devices (minus Sprint / VZW GNex), Google has posted factory images of each on the Nexus Factory Image page. These images are useful for flashing your Nexus device back to stock, whether to get an OTA update, or fix that brick you just caused.

The Nexus 4 Finally Gets Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) As Well - Here Are Instructions For Installing It Manually

Good news, everyone! The Nexus 4 Android 4.2.2 OTA (JDQ39) is finally here, surprisingly late in the update cycle, following the Nexus 10 and older Nexus devices, such as both variants of the Nexus 7 and both variants of the Galaxy Nexus. Chances are you probably don't have the coveted update notification just yet, but who wants to wait if you can sideload it manually? Rooted, unrooted, stock or custom recovery - it matters not.

Here's The Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 Update For The Yakju GSM Galaxy Nexus [Manual Installation Instructions]

A few days ago, Google pushed out the Android 4.2.2 (build JDQ39) update to the takju variants of the Galaxy Nexus. Takju Nexuses are the devices sold in the Google Play Store, whereas yakju ones can be found in other retail channels. Good news for those waiting on the latter - though a day after its sibling, we finally have the yakju OTA file that can be applied manually on any stock device, including unrooted ones with stock recovery.

New Android 4.2.2 Features: Toggle From Quick Settings, Better App Download Notifications, and Some New Sounds!

Android 4.2.2 is out, and while an OCD-fueled 4.2.2 edition of Getting To Know Android is on the way, we figured it would be a good idea to highlight the big user facing changes that came with this release. We already covered the new ADB Whitelist and posted the raw developer changelog, so this should be the last of the important stuff.

New Download Notifications

It's begun - the newest version of Android, 4.2.2, is being pushed to AOSP right now. We saw the accompanying Nexus OTA rollout start last night, with update files slowly springing up thereafter. Right now, 4.2.2 builds can be downloaded for the Takju Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi), and Nexus 10.

The build number is JDQ39 and the tag in AOSP is android-4.2.2_r1. Here are a few of the many directories that have been updated:

While the push has just started this morning, source will likely continue to show up throughout the day, and we'll update this page as that happens.

Here's The Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 Update For The Takju GSM Galaxy Nexus [Manual Installation Instructions]

A couple of hours ago, Google started rolling out the Android 4.2.2 update to a very limited subset of Nexus devices (build JDQ39). At this point, almost nobody can get the OTA pulled by going through the Settings screen, but don't worry - one of our loyal readers extracted the OTA url for the Galaxy Nexus and sent it over to us (great work, Daniel Koch!).

For now, we only have the link for the takju Galaxy Nexus variant, i.e.

Google Confirms Bluetooth A2DP Audio Streaming Fix For The 'Next Release' Of Android 4.2

Google Confirms Bluetooth A2DP Audio Streaming Fix For The 'Next Release' Of Android 4.2

While Android 4.2 may have brought a number of enhancements, it also brought its fair share of issues to the platform. Among those, there has been a real problem with Bluetooth – especially when it comes to A2DP streaming audio. Basically, audio lags and cuts out constantly, making a streaming experience far more frustrating than enjoyable.

Good news, though – Google has just confirmed that this issue will be fixed "in the next release," which should be Android 4.2.2.
